Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress for a coroporate blog? Is it suitable?

  • kmartino


    I am evaluating WordPress for a corporate blogging solution.

    We have a requirement to have the Admin hosted on a server behind our firewall and not publicly accessible.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you,

    Sure, it’s possible, you’ll just need to punch a hole in the firewall (create a rule to allow that traffice thru)

    As for it being suitable – yup, sure is. The nytimes uses it for their blog solution.



    if by ‘admin’ you mean ‘administrative interface’, and you are talking an extranet blog — not out of the box. not without some work. you could if you had some code that would copy changes to key local tables on an intranet version up to the extranet version. But there would still be an ‘admin interface’ on the extranet, aside from just completely removing the files there. 😉

    intranet, yes, you can run completely internally with no external interface.

    Alternatively, there has been some work this year on an HTTPS connection to the administrative interface (and a lot of other securing of the interface), in order to have it external but better secured. Depends on your needs.

    I don’t know of any blogging software that doesn’t have some level of administrative code running up on the primary server — even if it’s to allow XML-RPC blogging apps to publish to it.





    To clarify a little, we want to host the admin on a separate machine behind the firewall, and *not* have it publicly accessible, but the blog itself to be publicly viewable.

    Can we go so far as to remove the admin interface and related files on the public facing servers?
